Entering a Casual Round

ENTERING A CASUAL ROUND

England Golf suggest that golfers should submit qualifying cards so that their handicap index is an accurate reflection of their current play.

These 'Casual Rounds' are equivalent to the old 'Supplementary Cards' and they can be entered electronically using the HowDidiDo website or App, or using the Score Entry facility within the MyEG (England Golf) App.

The player submitting a Casual Round Card will need to play alongside their marker who needs to have a good awareness of the rules of golf. The player will need to sign into HowDidiDo or MyEG prior to play. The card "Marker" does not need to submit their own Casual Round Card (unless they wish to), but does need to witness and record the scores for the complete round of the player. Is is not essential that the card marker has their own handicap either.

This is the HowDidiDo web link.

To sign in the player clicks - Today's Golf and then clicks - Sign in

The player should choose 'Qualifying' round.
The player can choose 'Stableford' or 'Strokeplay' then choose either a '9-hole' or a '18-hole' round.
The intention to play has now been set and the round can be played.
The player should play off the appropriate red/white moveable tees.

Once the round has been completed the player and marker verbally agree the gross scores. There is no need to email the card or post it in the box in the clubhouse. Having agreed the scores the player returns to HowDidiDo to submit their score electronically (via the link above or using the App).

Clicks- Today's Golf
Next, select- Score Entry

The player will be asked for the surname of their marker, as the player begins to type options of club members will come up.
Once the marker has been confirmed the player inputs their gross score for hole by hole. Finally there is a box to sign to confirm the score.

Please remember that all scores should be entered & submitted on the day of play, otherwise rounds registered without scores being submitted will incur an automatic 0.1 shot penalty as directed by EnglandGolf.

Please also note that both HowDidIDo and MyEG systems require the player to be in close proximity (<2 miles) to the course) for the Sign-In and Score Entry processes to work. Location Services also need to be enabled for these Apps on your device whilst you are using them. Geo-location technology will ensure pre-registering the intent to post a score can only be done in close proximity to the course where the round will take place. Also, a time lag will be in operation from the point where intent to play a round is registered to the stage when a score can be accepted

NOTE: For the MyEG scoring process to work both player and marker need to have a registered & functional MyEG App.
